Indeed, Creative Europe is the only EU programme that expressly supports the cultural and creative sector and audiovisual industries. However, all the other EU programmes that we present on our website are also accessible for ideas and projects with a cultural focus. For example, the Erasmus+ educational framework programme is open to projects related to cultural education, or the Horizon Europe research framework programme is open to projects with a focus on cultural studies. So, figuratively speaking, we show you where to find the entry door for a cultural project in the respective EU programme on the individual programme pages.
None of the EU programmes functions according to branch logic; that is something that is applied by many national or regional funding programmes. The EU programmes focus on specific topics. In principle, all EU programmes are open to every branch (in other words, we really mean everything: dance, theatre, circus, music, visual arts, literature, film, design, architecture, cultural heritage, museums, archives, media arts, socioculture, etc.). However, the project should fit the topics of the respective EU programmes. If your dance project is more aimed at cultural education, Erasmus+ could be appropriate, if it concerns the integration of fugitive dancers, the Asylum and Migration Fund (AMIF) would possibly be more appropriate, and when it concerns the digitisation of dance as cultural heritage, Horizon Europe could be considered.
